New details have emerged on the Teen Wolf revival during SDCC 2022, and an interview with creator Jeff Davis sheds light on Scott’s age in the film.

Scott McCall is now older than Tyler Posey” (Going through Weekly entertainment). Considering Tyler Posey is 30 right now, Jeff Davis wasn’t lying when he said it was a big time jump from the show.

With many beloved cast members returning and a synopsis that promises even deadlier foes than any Scott and his friends have faced before, the Teen Wolf movie revival promises to be one to look forward to.
